Mechanical Engineering Masters Degree

A degree in Mechanical Engineering is designed to meet the needs of working professionals as well as potential students seeking to purse advanced studies in mechanical engineering in order to benefit their career or meet increasing professional licensure requirements. The program consists of advanced general mechanical engineering courses and graduate-level electives that increase knowledge, skills and competency in their fields. The 30-credit hour program involves 8 required courses covering major areas of mechanical engineering e.g. solid mechanics, fluid mechanics, heat transfer, thermodynamics, design, manufacturing, dynamics and vibrations, and computational mechanics. The two elective courses are being determined to provide interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary knowledge in areas like project management, research projects in engineering and various other important and relevant topics.

Graduates with a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering can apply their new knowledge in a variety of industries including aerospace, automotive, biomedical, energy, manufacturing, robotics, and thermal systems. Due to the advancement of technology companies are increasingly seeking advanced knowledge in their workforce. The MSME program intends to provide that knowledge with a reasonable balance among work, school and life. Starting Fall 2018 the MSME will be available online and on campus.
